    Seems daft to bat him at 7 when he is their best bat.

    I didn't know that, that seems crazy. I can only think he wasn't doing that well for the 2nds, or maybe had fitness issues. Ended up carrying his bat for 270, something like 60% of the runs scored off the bat - a monumental performance.


    Rather an unexpected lead for Essex, btw, though it's fair to say it owed at least as much to Napier and Phillips than to Cook's four-hour 50 - though that was no doubt a useful net for the England skipper.

    The middle order was doing alright last year (at least in the first half of the season), and Chesney never looked in touch in his limited over innings. There was some talk in Derby that his technique have been found out and that he was going to struggle if he didn't work a bit over it... well, it looks like he did, or maybe the other counties forgot about him we'll see in the next games how he fares. Meanwhile, he missed the highest score in Derbyshire's history by a measly 4 runs. Well played sir!
    It's the pitch, stupid.

    I think Napier might be the last of the county stalwarts that played back when I lived in Essex. Though Foster may have been starting up around that time. What a legend though. Seems to be better now than he was 5 or 6 years ago; I guess he's come to terms with his injury issues.

    Really significant couple of knocks by Root imo. Until this season Root made good contributions but wasn't a really heavy runscorer- England picked him out on potential as much as runscoring. So it's nice that he seems to be really developing his runscoring abilities.

    And during the Durham game he battled very hard in the first innings against a good opening attack of Onions and Rushworth at CLS. Good news for England.

    And he just runs Jaques out for the 2nd time in 2 games.

    Scores tons and indiscriminately causes Australians to fail, what a force he'll be for the Ashes.

    Gillespie needs to have a word with Gale and swap him around with Ballance in the batting order. Ballance already comfortably the better bat imo and more likely to make match winning contributions and is wasted at 6. Gale's technique is pretty wonky and he really doesn't score enough runs to bat at 4.

    Vince having a real nice start to the season. Hasn't done much in fc cricket in the last couple of years but with him scoring runs it makes the Hampshire batting lineup look pretty balanced and possibly the most talented in the 2nd division.

    How is Gillespie regarded as a coach in England?

    I was very impressed with an interview he gave recently and hope that he can pass on some of his knowledge to the good guys in the future

    Delighted with his season so far, say each year that it will be a breakthrough season for him but might actually be right this year.

    Not that it is helping us in this match, just gone for 67 and heading for defeat by the looks of things.
